Dr Good and Fr Motherway have both had the privilege of knowing the Fleischmann family. Fr Nicholas, a Columban missionary, studied under Prof. Fleischmann and graduated with a B.Mus. from UCC. He also studied piano with Tilly Fleischmann and he recalls several amusing anecdotes about that time. Fr James recalls early memories of listening to beautiful Gregorian Chant at the cathedral in Cork, under the direction of Herr Fleischmann. He was later a colleague of Prof. Fleischmann on the teaching staff at UCC. Aloys Fleischmann’s professorship at UCC is affectionately recalled, and the banter between the two priests about events of those days was wonderful to record. Fr James explains the circumstances surrounding the carving of a headstone in memory of Herr Fleischmann, and both priests discuss their days working on the missions in Africa.
